Rev. Gary Deinstadt
From the first time we sat down with Rev. Gary to the day of the wedding and even following, we have been impressed with the level of professionalism and thoroughness that Rev. Gary provided! We also loved how he gave us all the tools we needed to build our own personalized wedding ceremony and guided us along the way. Thank you, Gary!
I can't say enough Wonderful and Lovely things about Rev. Gary, so I'll paste below the words in our Thank You card that we mailed to him.
You made our wedding an unforgettable and memorable event. Our ceremony was intimate, personable and heart-warming because you helped to make it so. It was as if Walt and I had known you all our lives. We are indeed fortunate to have found such a treasure.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for such a beautiful ceremony.

Rev. Gary was amazing to work with. My husband and I really wanted a ceremony that told our love sotry. Rev Gary got to know us and put together a breathtaking ceremony that will forever touch our hearts. He put nice special touches on it and even said a few personal words at the end and it really meant the world to us.
We love Rev. Gary Deinstadt!
I cannot say how thrilled we were with Gary every step of the way. He made every effort to ensure our ceremony was exactly what we wanted and went out of his way to help us with anything and everything. We really feel that Gary is part of our family now. I know it wouldn’t have been the same without him. He did such a terrific job with offering us suggestions, keeping everyone on track throughout the rehearsal and ceremony and really and truly made such a difference in putting everyone, especially me, the bride, and my husband, at ease. We know our choice to have Gary as our officiant was definitely one of the best decisions we ever made for our wedding. Thank you so much, Gary, for everything! We are so happy to have you as our Reverend and friend.
Love, Kymie & Adrian
Gary is great! The ceremony couldn't have been any better! Gary is so nice and personable, I recommend him to anyone. The ceremony was not too long and was just put together really well. It was a little casual, which I loved, so I was not rigid at all and even felt comfortable enough to crack a small joke in the middle of it. He arrived early also, punctuality is very important!

Dear Rev. Gary,
Thank you so much for being the officiant at our wedding. We really appreciate how you took the time to meet and talk with us whenever we wanted, and all the materials you had prepared for us were extremely helpful. Before the ceremony and during the preparation process, your calm, prepared, caring way helped us to relax and plan the wedding ceremony that we really wanted to have, even if it didn't fit the traditional mold. During the ceremony, you brought humor, life and kindness that at times made us laugh and other times brought tears to our eyes. You dealt with all the unexpected things that came up during the ceremony with grace and flair. Again, we couldn't be more appreciative of the contribution you made to our special day. We already recommended you to another friend!

I am so thankful to my friend Andrea for referring us to Reverend Gary Deinstadt, as he was a perfect fit for us! Gary took the time to talk to us, to get to know us, how we met etc. and we were also able to get to know him. Choosing who will marry you is the most important aspect of planning a wedding. So often I've seen where the priest/reverend loses an audience because they lack the charisma to keep guests engaged by their story telling, or interest in the couple. After the ceremony, our guests kept coming up to us and commenting on what a great job Reverend Gary did, and how nice he was. Of course we agreed! It was nice too, that he stayed after the ceremony for part of the cocktail hour to spend time with our family with whom he had met at our rehearsal that he came to. They loved him!!! Prior to our big day, if I had a question I emailed him and got a response right away, if not the same day. He listened to what we wanted and was extremely professional, kind and a wonderful person to deal with. Thank you so much Gary for an absolute FLAWLESS ceremony ;) Actually, the whole day was just a breeze and we can't wait to see the video!!!! All our best, Jennifer and Ian Austin
We can whole heartily say that we had such a great wedding day and were pleased to have Rev. Gary Deinstadt as our officiant, who did such an outstanding job composing and performing the ceremony. He was so personable and really wanted to get to know us and our story. We met with him before our big day which was great because by the time the wedding came around he felt like a friend rather than just a guy that is marrying us! You could tell he was so passionate about the wedding experience for couples and instantly created a connection with us. He is very talented at what he does and listened to our needs. His warm personality made him very easy to work with and his suggestions made our ceremony more meaningful. He created a unique and personal ceremony that will now be a lasting and precious memory for us and our guests. Gary arrived in plenty of time and helped us get it together those last moments before the ceremony when you are super frazzled and nervous. All paper work and legal matters were taken care of effortlessly and everything ran smoothly. Besides being professional, he is an extremely warm and friendly person. He was also wonderful during the ceremony. We had a small, intimate ceremony in New York Central Park and he hit just the perfect note for it. We could never have imagined such a perfect fit for our wedding day, and are still so grateful to Gary for making it possible. We have received endless compliments about him following the ceremony. Anyone who chooses him for their officiant will be forever thankful, as Gary will make your day amazing and unique and we would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Rev Gary Deinstadt to any of our family or friends considering getting married in New York.

"I am so lucky to say that Rev. Gary officiated at my wedding! When my now husband and I first met with him we knew he was “the one”. His down to earth and easy going personality was just what we wanted. He took the time to get to know us and kept in contact with us throughout all of our planning. It made us feel like we actually knew him and made us so much more comfortable on our wedding day. Rev. Gary came to our rehearsal which put us at ease and helped us figure it all out. The day of the wedding couldn’t have gone better. The ceremony went perfectly and Rev. Gary did an AMAZING job! We had TONS of compliments on how good he was, how he made the ceremony so much about us, how genuine he sounds… He also stayed for some of the cocktail hour and gave the blessing before our meals came out. I gave him five stars because that’s all I could give!! I would recommend him to ANYONE!!"
